Islam is losing ...

Two interesting news items today:

1) Persian woman feel embolden enough to want to enjoy life and flout the rules; Islam just doesn’t have the clout it once had. link (hat tip Tracinski)

2) A network news report showed that Iraqi jihadists were targeting Iraqi barbers. Yes, Iraqi barbers! Several have been killed in recent months, for shaving men’s faces. Yes, oppression will make enemies – but it’s the jihadists that are seen as the oppressors, now. See, also, this report on Iraqi protests.
